The Best New Makeup Products Launching in June 2021
Many of us haven't been wearing a whole lot of makeup over the past year. While lockdown provided us with the opportunity to get our skin-care regimens sorted and indulge in sensory beauty experiences as a way to manage stress and anxiety, it didn't offer a lot of opportunity — or reason, really — to meticulously apply foundation or break out the bold eyeshadow and bright lipstick (although, if you did manage to wear a full face of makeup during lockdown, we seriously applaud you). My WFH makeup look consisted of three products: concealer, mascara, and tinted lip balm, and that was on a good day. Some mornings, I barely had the willpower to wash my face.
As the United Kingdom opens back up, however, and we can finally hang out at pubs and restaurants with our friends (even if it is outside for most of the month), many of us are excitedly taking our makeup out of hibernation. Not only that, but beauty brands are gifting us with loads of new launches, so much so that it's hard to keep track — but not to worry, that's where we come in. Every month, we round up the most exciting makeup launches coming to the UK, from classic brands to indie newcomers and all the liners, lipsticks, and mascaras in between.
When it comes to what's arriving in the UK in May, Glossier introduces two new hues to its Lidstar liquid eyeshadow range (you know, the ones that casually debuted on Beyoncé at the 2018 Grammy Awards), Christian Louboutin Beauty introduces its biggest launch of the year (both in terms of excitement and size), and KVD Beauty has brought out liquid-gel blushers which are sure to be the next beauty product to go viral on TikTok. Keep reading to discover all of the makeup newness arriving in the UK this month.
